Product Description
Do your students have difficulty differentiating between finding the main idea and determining the theme? My students did which is why I created and use this listing!

Students will read ANY text, fiction or non-fiction, of any length and at any reading level. They will determine the genre and based on the genre, they will decide if the text they read has a main idea or a theme or perhaps both!! They will then use supporting text evidence for their final choice/choices. This is a great activity for studying non-fiction narratives, but it will work well with ANY genre.
Designed for multiple uses, multi-use.
Includes:
-introductory page/lesson page (defining and example/reference page)
-a modified 2nd page for guided practice once the first page is used
-a 3rd page for extended, independent practice
Flexible use options:
-use with the whole class, with small groups, or for remediation
-use as a lesson with main idea, theme, or both
-use with fiction or non-fiction or both
-use as another opportunity to find the main idea or theme
-use as a document during independent reading or SSR/DEAR
-use to supplement ANY reading program, anthology, or basal text
-use as a job in a lit. circle, book club, novel study
